I noticed a lot of the entries consisting of a whole shitload of bias, I'll try to do this from an objective
position. A raver
can be anyone who attends an all night party (could be underground and small or "bust-free" and a massive) consisting of DJs who play electronic dance music (for example: trance, house, happy
hardcore, drum & bass, etc.) frequently. There
is still debate about whether
or not someone is considered a "raver
" if they only attend the massives and never go to any of the smaller, underground ones. A raver does
not have to use ecstasy; some have chosen to dance sober therefore being
called a raver does
not necessarily mean being
called a drug addict. It is, however, quite a popular drug in the scene
, nonetheless, since
it enhances the music and the lights for most people as well as gets rid of any inhibitions. The rave scene
in England officially started in 1987/1988 while in America, it started in the early 90s. The rave
culture is still going strong although raves
are much more commercialized now than when
the movement first
The meaning of PLUR:
• Peace - to stay cool with
all people around them
thus uplifting the culture
• Love - to stay close to all other ravers making rave
one big family.
- to stand together for the one cause to party.
• Respect- to understand the world they're in and those trying for improvement.
